My special visit from Santa Paws!!

Happy Holidays my furry friends!!

I've been so excited reading about everyone's visit from Santa Paws, that I wanted to share my own...

Well the morning started as it should -

With me sleeping in.

Shhh...Those reindeers need to keep it down!
But I was quickly jolted into action, when I discovered something new under the tinsel...

Well hello there Mr Stocking... 

Hooray! Santa Paws had come to town!!!

And after such a big build-up, I'm very pleased to report that Santa did not disappoint!

Please be food.. please be food... please be food...

YES!!!!

A bone! Santa knows me too well! 

The first thing I found in my stocking, was a big, chunky bone!!

What a great guy this Santa is, I couldn't wait to see what else was in store for me.

There must be more...

Woohoo!!!!

A special Christmas tree raw hide treat!!
Now at this point I got a little... ummmm... preoccupied -

Leave me alone mum! I'm busy...

And mum had to point out that there was still one more treat in my stocking...

A festive bow tie!!


Yes! Stylish and festive.. well done Santa!
It was a super morning, and just when I thought things couldn't get any better..

Mum called me back to bed for a special gift just from her!

Gimme, gimme, gimme!!
And then my amazing papa treated me to the funnest present of all...

A squeaky pig! Don't worry papa, I'll demolish this in seconds...

Well I'm very proud to say the squeaky pig was missing one of its ears and most of its stuffing within minutes..

And my raw hide treats from mum didn't last to see daylight!!

What a great Christmas!!


Thanks so much to all my Blogville buddies for their great Christmas cards too -

So many great cards!
You've all really made it a very special Christmas!


Until next time!

  2. Though you look very handsome in your bow, we think a rawhide tree wins out every time. And then a squesky pig....bonanza! What a great Christmas you had.

    1. Oh I do love the sound of the bone-nanza!!
      The bone looks very tasty but mum hasn't let me eat it yet - I think she's saving it for a New Year's treat :)

      The squeaking pig was sooooo much fun - and I think I set a record for how quickly I could love (ie destroy) the "non-destructible" toy, hee hee!

    1. Hey Murphy and Stanley,
      Yes I was a little worried how Santa would view that whole tennis ball eating incident but he obviously understands me!
      Hoping your New Year celebrations are fun!

  8. Morrie I thinks since Santa Paws starts out near you at Christmas Island he unloads his heavy sleigh more ~ and by the time he gets to my house well lets just say I got one stuffie.
    Happy New Year Morrie and family

  10. Morrie...OMCs we love your tinsel tree and that is one fine stocking. Mom wanted to also say how very interested she was/is in the way your Mum sent your Christmas cards. We have never heard of that before and OMCs the card was just so lovely.
    Happy New Year's Eve, Eve Madi and Mom

    1. Hey Madi!
      I was a little skeptical about the decorations at first but I've grown to like them and will be sad when they get packed up soon...
      Mum says she's used the Touchnote app before and it makes it easier to send cards to friends around the world (also because the Australia Post service can take a very long time...I think they must use kangaroos to deliver their mail...!)
      Lots of good wishes to you and your mum for the new year!

    1. Hey there Moth!
      I do feel very smart in my bow tie but it did get itchy after a while and I ALWAYS prefer foodables :)

  12. Wow! Sounds like you and I have the same routine regarding squeaky toys: remove the squeaker and stuffing as soon as possible!

    Have a Happy New Year!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hee hee yes that's exactly my routine!
      I do also like to try and chew part of the squeaker (in this case the pigs ear) off as well...

  14. Santa sure fit a lot into your stocking. Wondering if the pig ever made it off the cardboard before you finished him off. You'll have to come over and give Xena lessons on fishing pressies out of bags and stockings and wrapping paper. She had no idea what to do this year, it being her first Christmas.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Well I would love to show Xena a thing or too about dealing with presents!! I'm actually extremely good at unwrapping gift wrap and removing foodables from their packaging!
      The piggie did come off the cardboard (but only because mum insisted).

    1. Hi Bentley and Pierre,
      I think Santa gave me the squeaky pig because I kept trying to chew the kitchen table legs.. so maybe give that a go?!
      I can't deny it, the raw hide treats were VERY tasty!!
